Teams: SL Benfica
Rio Ave vs Benfica
tonight we play against Rio Ave, at 20.30 GMT, and it will be of course a must win game
this is one of the toughest teams in the league, fighting for the europe league spots and in their stadium teams usually have a hardtime, so i'm expecting a lot of work, but trust the team will be prepared to fight and give it all to win the match
players called by Rui Vitória:
Goalies – Ederson , Paulo Lopes
Defenders – Grimaldo, Luisão, Lindelof, Eliseu, Sílvio, Jardel , André Almeida
Midfield- Fejsa, Samaris, Gaitán, Salvio, Pizzi, Talisca, Carcela , Renato Sanches
Forwards – Raúl Jiménez, Mitroglou, Jonas
Guedes and Nélson Semedo were called for the B team, to help them ..but i dont think this is the solution, Guedes is a player that imo has his place in the A team, full stop , Nélson hasnt fully recovered yet but basically, in spite of their talent, jumping in the B team for a match ? how will that help them? the B team has lost 5 very important players this season ( and that can explain all the goals that have been suffered), but don't think this is the solution
having said that, good to see Silvio back( isnt he better than Eliseu..i mean seriously? if Rui doesnt play him, will have his reasons, but how bad did he fall after breaking his leg not to able to play ahead of Eliseu...)
